KNOW YOUR FIREPLACE STYLE

GEORGIAN

Meant to be the focal point of a room, fireplaces in the Georgian style (1714-1837) are characterized by their size, usually between five to six feet wide and up to five feet in height.  The openings are tall and wide, and they feature elaborate fire baskets and decorative fronts.  

Georgian fireplaces are distinguished by their classical design and motifs including medallions, urns, swags, and other classical forms.  Many feature fluted pilasters  with iconic capitals, topped by a central frieze with a  rectangular central tablet featuring a decorative motif.
